Tim Belford Remembered- The Steve Andrews Quartet

Veteran pianist Tim Belford, who played in the very first Steve Andrews quartet performance at the Roundhouse many years ago (and many more subsequently) died last year. His legacy to jazz in Cumbria was immense, spanning big bands in Carlisle, a long spell with the semi-legendary Mick Potts Gateway Jazz Band, and an even longer one with Bruce Carnaffin’s Mainline Jazz. That band included Steve Andrews in its original line-up, leading to Steve making the far-from-difficult choice of Tim as his pianist when he formed his Quartet, which performed frequently at Carlisle Jazz Club and of course the Roundhouse. Tim very quickly became a favourite performer here, displaying his endless invention and wit at the keyboard in a completely un-flashy way, as befits a man who was known for his good humour and modesty. We’re pleased that his widow Liz has accepted our invitation to attend this concert in Tim’s honour, and the band is composed of musicians who played with him on many occasions. Apart from Steve on whichever selection of reed instruments he chooses from his vast collection, you will hear Roy Cansdale on double bass (making a rare visit from Gloucestershire), Roly Veitch on guitar and Euan Pringle on drums: all people who played regularly with Tim in Carlisle and elsewhere. This will be a special night in memory of a special man. Tickets £14.50 Members £12.50 Price includes a free glass of wine!
